Strange Noises Explained
Everywhere I’ve turned lately there has been some sort of spooky creature lurking (okay, usually they aren’t moving) or creepy movie ad—tis the season after all. With all these creepies infiltrating my preferred, sunshine and rainbows outlook, the noises in my house seem to be harder to disregard. Together, let’s put my mind and yours at ease for a better night’s sleep to come!
Materials that are used to build a house- wood frames, plywood, glass, metal ducts, nails, plumbing pipes—all expand at different rates. This means, according to houselogic, as a house cools at night, the materials may move slightly, rubbing against each other making noises that could make you sit straight up in bed! “But they seem to be happening more frequently,” you may say. To that I respond, “Tis the season” but literally this time, it is the fall season which means that while the sun may warm up our days the nights are usually filled with crisp, cool air causing your house to cool even more.
